Some scars aren't visible on the surface. Sienna's spent her entire life working at Maze's tourist trap restaurant. She learned the ropes, and became the head cook. No way was she giving up her spot to some rookie hot shot from Atlanta.
Leroy's gut burned at the mention of heading back to Atlanta. Rae didn't work at Thelma's anymore. But every time he went into the kitchen, her ghost was resurrected and haunted him. Ghostly images of her hot ass saddled across his waist as she rode him on the kitchen floor assaulted him. He couldn't breathe without inhaling her scent, and he'd never eat chocolate pudding again.
Leroy found himself more than a little bored by the lack of engaging recipes or entrees on Maze's menu. The hot action occurred on the dinner shift. Fish dishes and seafood from the bay made excellent opportunities for experimentation and the creation of innovative dishes. That was one thing this place had over Thelma's.
